  • This museum is tiny (situated in an old underground public toilet), but informative and fun. It has been obviously lovingly curated, and there is a lot to look at for such a small place. A real plus.....  more

  • Great little spot owner /operator very passionate about the whole scene. Got to see and hear some early stuff and had a great convo with him and another visitor on what the scene was about and how both were carrying on with it today..
  • Small museum, very easy to miss walking by - but a must-see in Reykjavik. Humorous and informative, and being able to listen to samples of many of the artists mentioned at the end is a really great feature.
